Type locality: “Zekerlyk uit de Indië” (see comment)
Type locality: “Nordaustralien” [Gecko trachylaemus PETERS 1873] Map legend:
TDWG region - Region according to the TDWG standard, not a precise distribution map.

NOTE: TDWG regions are generated automatically from the text in the distribution field and not in every cases it works well. We are working on it.
 
TypesHolotype: ZMB 7511 [Gecko trachylaemus PETERS 1873] 
CommentDistribution: Records from Fiji are in error. Manthey & Grossmann (1997) doubt the occurrence of G. vittatus on Java. The original type locality (“Zekerlyk uit de Indië”) means “certainly from India” and is thus in error. Not in Timor (pers. comm., M. O’Shea 12. Nov. 2013).

Synonymy: after WERMUTH 1965 and RÖSLER et al. 2012.
